The long-awaited trial for a Burmese refugee accused of kidnapping and killing a young girl at the South Salt Lake apartment complex where they both lived was delayed again Monday.
Esar Met, 26, is charged in 3rd District Court with first-degree felony counts of aggravated murder and child kidnapping in connection with the 2008 slaying of 7-year-old Hser Ner Moo. His trial was scheduled to begin on July 15.
But after a hearing Monday, the trial date was vacated. A new date could be set at an upcoming hearing in July.
